A nerve is a bundle of axons, and some nerves are less sensitive to lidocaine. If a nerve, rather than an axon, had been used in the lidocaine experiment, the responses recorded at R1 and R2 would be the sum of all the action potentials (called a compound action potential). Would the response at R2 after lidocaine application necessarily be zero? Why or why not

Firstly, it's important to understand that lidocaine is a sodium channel antagonist and will block sodium ion channels from working, preventing the generation of an action potential. So, I'd say no.

yeah, it also if depend if the nerve is sensitive to the lidocaine, or not.
